Thank you for providing the above named KILT applicant with a reference for the Montecito Sequoia Family
Camp KILT Program! Please submit this reference no later than February 22, 2022.
The KILT Program ('Kamper-In-Leadership-Training' Program) is a three-week leadership course for teens/high school students, designed to teach participants about important leadership fundamentals, the rewarding nature of hard work, how to be a team player, and to instill the types of skills, level of responsibility, and work ethic we look for in members of our staff.
The program structure consists of four parts:
- Leadership training
- Assisting counselors in their activity areas; Helping with guests (both adults & children)
- "Nitty-gritty" cleaning and camp beautification projects
- Free time to enjoy camp activities
There are four levels in the KILT Program - KILTs I-IV - with increasing levels of responsibility. We expect KILTs to grow and mature each time they attend our program. KILTs are supervised by our KILT Director(s) who will assess their work and provide feedback on how to improve. To apply for a KILT position, the applicant must at least be entering the 9th grade next Fall. They will interact on a daily basis with our guests, both adults and children, so therefore, they will need to represent our camp well and serve as role models for our young campers.
Thank you for your time and assistance. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.
